Didn't find any solutions for me. Good idea if it worked.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1). 

Working together

The site is a database of solutions from other people. It can't solve every solution ever.

It counts on you and other users to come back later and share your solution so the next poor soul doesn't have the same problem.

Working together we can change this-- that's the point of this extension.

Thanks for the feedback, but feel free to also submit that directly to us on the bug.gd website: http://bug.gd

Prompt response Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was unable to delete a "test" error I had entered just to see if the thing worked. It accurately reported that I had "1 unsolved" error in the status bar, but then I wanted to delete the "test" because it wasn't a real error.

I emailed the author and got a prompt response. They deleted the "test" error I had made on their end.

Still haven't solved the issue, but the prompt response by the author (have gotten two of them by now, so clearly they're trying to help me) is impressive . . . especially considering that I've emailed for support on other add ons and gotten NO response.

Was about to give up on this, but the author's prompt response and trobleshooting has convinced me otherwise.

Can't really comment on the add on yet since I'm still experimenting with it, but based on the support I've gotten, I will say that it's worth a try.

Edit: Found out it was a NoScript conflict. To avoid this, simply place http://bug.gd in your NoScript whitelist.

Second Edit: My compliments to the developer . . . very prompt responses . . . and though I still haven't used this extension other than to "test" it, the support is above and beyond for an add on in my experience. I'm a happy camper now, ready to use this extension when the need arises.

Still waiting for an occassion to try this, but for now... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Any chance of having JUST the little bug icon in the status bar, instead of the bug with "Search errors" next to it? My status bar space is getting fairly cluttered! Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3). 

Good idea

As I mentioned via email, keep in mind that the little status bar text is going to change to show the number of unsolved errors you have. It only says "Search errors" initially.

That being said, it's a great idea to make that text optional, so I'll consider adding that to the next version (after our upcoming 1.5 release).

Thanks for the feedback-- please let us know if there's anything else we can do to improve our extension for your usage.

Finding solutions to errors made that much easier. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension allows you to quickly search for errors on the http://bug.gd site. As handy as that site is, this extension makes it that much handier. Simply copy an error message and click a couple of buttons to start searching for a solution - you can't get much easier than that. Humanity still has a chance afterall...

bug.gd plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works great and the bug.gd website will help a lot of people in the near future.

Works without a hitch Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Bug.gd is an incredibly useful concept - and with this extension it is made even easier to quickly search for solutions to bugs, and track unsolved ones. The bug.gd extension, appropriately enough, seems to be entirely bug free.

Very good/useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The bug.gd Add-on for Firefox makes it much easier to access bug.gd and also makes it faster pasting errors into it. One clicks on the bug.gd icon, CTRL+V and another click and your are done. Very good!
